I was asked to draw a guide on drawing fatties, but I… had no clue how to, so I figured I’d doodle up some examples instead. I generally have no clue what I’m doing when I draw bodytypes like this, ahaha. I really adore drawing chubs though, in case that wasn’t obvious yet.
A lot of my chubby characters are a bit on the stubby side as well, and I didn’t entirely manage to break away from that default… Honestly, though, as long as you don’t forget to add some squish on the sides and make sure to have the body balanced out, they’re pretty straightforward to draw, I think.
this’ll never help me out cause i can’t even draw.
but its still interesting to point out and also antje is a really good artist and knows stuff.
how to draw me :D
and may i single out in particular one incredibly overlooked fact of obese anatomy:
THE FEET AND HANDS ARE NOT BALLOONS. LOOK CLOSELY! FAT PEOPLE HAVE NORMAL SIZED EXTREMITIES WITH ROUNDED DIGITS, NOT GIANT BLUBBERY WALRUS-FLIPPERS.
i see this one a LOT in people who learned all their anatomy from largely homogenous animu shit, and while the results are not quite as horrible as the way a lot of mangaka draw PoC as being barely human, it’s… pretty bad.
I’m sure this is on tumblr somewhere. Refs.
